  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In the Rocky mountains (Rockies), Canada, we see various shots of sheep being herded to high ground to graze. In the autumn, the sheep are brought back to the lower ground, ready for shearing. As the sheep gallop along one leaps in the air as if head butting an imaginary football.

    In Soar-y-Mynedd, Wales, we see 4 children walking across a barren hillside. The three boys and one girl who are the only pupils at a tiny school in a rural area are seen outside the school building with their male teacher.

    At Pershore, Hereford and Worcester, we see a lorry being turned into a tractor by means of a caterpillar band being fixed over the wheels. The wheels then move easily over muddy and wet ground.
